this weekend was all about:
+big breakfasts
+dinner with our fave friends
+joony growing some teeth, which meant rocking him to sleep and enjoying clean baby/cinnamon-y orajel/baby lotion smell...which might be my new favorite smell ever (side note: do those amber teething necklaces work?)
+the first snowy days of winter:
+sleeping 6am-12pm while david played with joony, my longest stretch of sleep in 6 months! bliss.
+a halloween party with a tired little boy...we were home by 7 ;)
+skyping with family = THE BEST
+sending 25 balloons into the sky for the birthday of an amazing friend who passed away earlier this year:
+LOSING MY CELL PHONE, the most frustrating thing ever in the world. i have no idea where it is
+insane in the membrane (literally) headaches
+too many desserts, including a massive chunk of chocolate cake that made for three days of snacking & cookies made for aforementioned halloween party:


  1. love your outfit. it's perfect for fall! and those sweets look delicious.
    we have a teething necklace for my little guy and it seems to help. he's been wearing it constantly since about 3 months, and he popped his first 2 teeth at 4 months. he is only really especially fussy when the teeth are right about to come through. he is working on tooth number 4 right now and honestly, he is still a pretty good sleeper and is generally happy. i believe in the power of the necklace!

  2. i just ordered gemstone an amber necklace yesterday! i'll let ya know.

  3. What a great way to celebrate someone's life!!

  11. My name is Mrs.Karisa Jack, from U.S.A,New York City. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once. when i went to Africa in July this year on a business summit. i ment a man called Dr. AIGBE.He is powerful he could help you cast a spells to bring back my love’s gone,misbehaving lover looking for some one to love you, bring back lost money and magic money spell or spell for a good job.i’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 2 years… i really loved him, but his mother was against me and he had no good paying job. so when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him..at first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. and in 6 days when i returned to New York, my boyfriend (is now my husband ) he called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married..i didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do… well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid,and my husband also got a new job and our lives became much better. in case anyone needs the spell caster for some help, email address aigbespelltemple@yahoo.com
